Hello, Dog Lover!
Welcome to the Rainier Agility Team website. Founded in 1989, RAT is the oldest Agility Club in the Seattle-Tacoma area. We host 9 trials a year in 4 different venues, so we literally have something for everybody!
Our Club’s mission is to promote the sport of Agility in the Pacific Northwest! We are comprised of a group of dog owners, who enjoy the benefits of increasing the bond with our dog(s) through positive play and training agility skills. We work together to organize and run trials to compete in, as well as provide Demonstrations to teach the public about the fun you can have with your dog, and fun runs where members can practice in a trial-like environment. Competing is not a requirement to be in the RAT Club. Any healthy breed or mixed breed of dog can do agility, if properly trained to negotiate the equipment safely. Anyone is welcome to join RAT as long as they are willing to meet the Club requirements.
This website has many pages of information about the Sport of Agility, where to find instructors, what the Club requirements are and how to join. Please take a look through the website and if you have questions, go to the Contact page to ask your questions. We’d be happy to help you. You may also wish to check out our Facebook page.
We hope to see you and your dog, soon!
